When in Aspen, one must indulge. To do that, a bowlful of creamy pasta and a bold Tuscan wine will do the trick. But, for the full, multi-course Italian way, check out these eateries for the perfect antipasti, contorni and dolci too. Mangia!

1 L'Hostaria

Even during the quietest times of year, L'Hostaria is packed with patrons. The homemade noodles, made fresh daily, and creative Italian dishes like pan-seared sole and breaded veal chop Milanese over arugula keep guests coming back. Paired with a specialty wine list with an emphasis on Italian varietals, the dining experience guarantees one thing: you won't leave hungry.

2 Casa Tua

With a successful homebase in Miami, Casa Tua opened an Aspen outpost a couple of years ago and has gained a steady stream of clientele since. Four menus--antipasti, primi, secondi and dolci--represent the cuisine of northern Italy, but the decor is upscale, trendy and caters to the hip Aspen lifestyle.

3 Campo de Fiori

A traditional trattoria with a loyal following, this intimate Italian restaurant is a staple on Aspen's "Restaurant Row." The autunnale salad with butternut squash, portobello mushrooms and artichoke hearts is a must-have appetizer, and entrees like the penne vodka or linguine positano please the palate. Try a splash of the limoncello on your way out.

4 Mezzaluna

The secret to this essential Italian eatery is its wood-fired pizzas. Yes, the giant calamari and Grandma's stuffed shells are mouth-pleasers, but the fresh, thin-crust pizzas topped with julienned vegetables or broccoli raab, fontina and mozzarella are what sets this restaurant apart.

5 Acquolina Aspen

Though the name and theme of this Italian spot has changed over the years, its owners and consistently good food has stayed the same. Now open for lunch and dinner, Acquolina Aspen has a full menu of pasta, risotti and more than a dozen pizzas from margherita to salsiccia.
